Power Loss to ESC/Motor?
Ok, so my current VTA set up is a Savox 1258TG, LRP AI Pro Brushless Reverse ESC, Novak 25.5 motor, Gens Ace 5000mah 40c LiPo, and an Airtronics MX-Sport remote. I recently noticed an issue with this setup.
Whenever I allow the vehicle to drive without using the servo, the motor can spin up to full speed if I fully depress the throttle. Once I start steering back and forth left to right, the motor begins spinning considerably slower, and this is with equal throttle applied. If I steer back and forth quickly, the motor will slow down almost to a crawl. The servo will still go left and right, but the spinning of the motor is cut down at least 80%.
I've tried switching out servos and batteries, and trying them each individually on other cars. The problem still occurs. With the Savox 1251MG servo, the problem is still there, but it's significantly less than with the larger 1258TG.
I've also tried each servo with a Hobbywing 35a/13t motor set up, and the slowing down did not happen. However, I can't pinpoint exactly if its the ESC or the motor, and I'm hesitant to take it apart because I do not own a soldering iron, nor do I know how to solder anyway.
Anyone have a guess as to what the problem may be?
